Just a quick post today! Voting is now closed, and the Reading Buddies book for November will be The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. With over 40% of the votes, it’s this month’s clear winner.
To entice you to participate, here’s the Goodreads blurb:
“The Woman in White is a Victorian melodrama concerning a mysterious woman in white who bears an uncanny resemblance to the fiancee of Count Fosco, a sophisticated fortune hunter. First published as a serial between 1859 and 1860, this chronicle of evil, suspense, and villainy is believed to be the first English novel to deal with crime detection.”
I’m excited to finally read this classic. It’s been recommended to me again and again by plenty of people whose opinions I trust, so I’m expecting a good read!
My Woman in White posting schedule for November will be:
Discussion post: Friday, November 18th
Wrap-up post: Friday, December 2nd
A note on the dates: I pushed the schedule for November back a week so that the second post wouldn’t follow Thanksgiving so closely. Plus, it’s a longer book, so we’ll have a bit more time to read it.
If you’re thinking of reading along, please let me know in the comments so I have some idea of who’s most likely participating. Also, December’s poll is now up in the sidebar. Be sure to vote for your pick!
